Nice job.. congrats.
Thank you sir or ma'am (don't wanna presume!) and I think yellow with paint splashes actually works better, especially when being repurposed as ugly junk. It lends a certain je ne sais quoi...

That's the one and I was thinking the same thing! I used it a couple of times with my burner separate and my pump on the ground and felt like I might as well go back to using the table. I wanted a self contained unit with everything mounted so I could wheel it out and brew. I couldn't figure out how to make it work with the steps/ shelves that came with it, even if I was OK with destroying them, which I wasn't. So I made that bottom span out of strut which leaves the originals there to use as shelves during a brew day and a real scaffold on-forbid the thought-a non-brew day. It also works really well having the skinnier shelf up front so it can be removed while mashing in and then put back to give more room to lay out hops, brew sheets, beer, tools, etc.

Here's my recently finished stand on it's maiden voyage. Ran awesome for the first two batches, looking forward to many more.

I've jokingly called it the Power of Tower while building it, but haven't really come up with a name yet.

A buddy brought them from some job left overs. They're 1515 profile, same as 8020 or any of the others.

I should have nearly enough leftover parts to do this. And that will work awesome for sous vide!

You should build it just for the helluva it and have sous vide after brewing!

Here are some updated pics of my (mostly) finished scaffold stand in action yesterday.

I originally planned to mount the pump between the kettle and MLT but I was worried about heat and liquids so I moved it to the end. I had no priming problems but it did pump really sluggishly when filling the MLT until I flipped the power off and on. Is there a problem mounting it at that angle? I've read about removing and rotating the pump head but I didn't think you had to mount it with the base plate down. It is just arrached to a couple extra pieces of strut with two big u-bolts.

I built the lower shelf out of Super Strut and mounted the burner with a piece of flat slotted steel I bent to fit. I had the expanded metal laying around and it bolted right on.
